He has described each and everyone as he or she really was and the true purpose and motives behind the gigantic struggle. There will always be a few independent thinkers, even among the self-appointed guardians of the multitude. Of Lessing, Kierkegaard writes approvingly. Completely alone, cut off from his fellow-men, the individual realizes his own nothingness as the preliminary condition for embracing the truth of God. But now, if they are only as reliable as this why are they treated as if they were infinitely more reliable-precisely because one wants to base on them the acceptance of a doctrine that is the condition for an eternal happiness, that is, to base an eternal happiness on them.

A leap of faith according to Kierkegaard involves circularity insofar as the leap is made by faith. From this it first follows that he no longer has anything to do with world history but in that respect leaves everything to the royal poet. When the transition happens, one moves directly from one state to the other, never possessing both qualities. First of all we should have a little explanation, a judgment pronounced on the other gambler; every life that is not thoughtless eo ipso indirectly passes judgment. Ferling's swift-moving narrative teems with fascinating details.

Once such men have thrown off the yoke of nonage, they will spread about them the spirit of a reasonable appreciation of man's value and of his duty to think for himself. Like everyone else, Lessing is willing to believe that an Alexander who subjugated all of Asia did live once, but who, on the basis of this belief, would risk anything of great, permanent worth, the loss of which would be irreparable? Here as well are activists who are not so well known today, men like Abraham Yates, who battled for democratic change, and Theodore Sedgwick, who fought to preserve the political and social system of the colonial past. A Leap in the Dark is his masterpiece, work that provokes, enlightens, and entertains in full measure.
